Looks like he's been watching a little Major League 2 with that slide.

Wonder what the opposing team was arguing...possibly "leaving the baseline"??

I think he was arguing that the catcher applied the tag.

Or he was so shocked and amazed by it all, he wanted to get in the video.

My 1 son is a level 3 Umpire & he should have been out - leaving the baseline "in any manner".

But there's no height element to the base path - you can't leave it up jumping too high, right?

How is jumping leaving the baseline? When you do a head first slide your feet leave the baseline for a short period of time. How is this different?
